Aforé Beauty CR Emulsion

AEDIT-Afore

The latest innovation from board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Juilus Few, MD, pairs skincare’s most beloved ingredient with one of the buzziest. To temper the sensitizing effects of retinol, the water-soluble formula features medical-grade cannabidiol (a.k.a. CBD). In a 42-day clinical study, 100 percent of patients demonstrated a reduction in static and dynamic wrinkles, lightened pigmentation, and less visible pores. All the while, no one experienced significant irritation. $300, aforebeauty.com

This creamy serum is a miracle worker for dry, dark, and delicate under eyes. The brand's unique truffle complex features a blend of black, white, and summer truffles that deliver essential fatty acids and antioxidants into the skin to firm, brighten, and depuff. Additionally, hyaluronic acid, avocado peptides, and lupine proteins boost water retention and strengthen the skin barrier for a rejuvenating effect. $114, byroe.com

Versed Firm Ground Retinol Body Lotion

AEDIT-Versed

Because the skin below your neck needs some love, too, this lightweight and grease-free (trust us!) body lotion is equal parts moisturizer and treatment. Squalane and shea butter condition the skin, while encapsulated .01 percent retinol improves tone and texture. There is no wrong way to use it, but we love it as a hand cream because it offers a quick dose of hydration while smoothing and brightening the skin over time. $18, versedskin.com

Evolis Let There Be Hair Supplement

AEDIT-Evolis

If you are hoping to start off the new year with a new ‘do, look no further than this healthy hair supplement. To counteract stress-related tress changes, ashwagandha, zinc, saw palmetto, and vitamins B and D are just a few of the ingredients in these nutrient-rich capsules that help balance cortisol levels, support the hair growth cycle, and feed the follicle. $65 for 60 capsules, evolisproducts.com

C'est Moi Beauty Think Twice Eyeliner Pencil

AEDIT-cestmoi

These dual-sided liners give you two complementary shades in just one pencil, and the long-lasting pigment glides on without any dragging or pulling on the sensitive skin around the eye. Use them to line your lash line, waterline, or for a creative look anywhere on your face. $12, cestmoi.com

Slurp Laboratories Decalt

AEDIT-Decalt

Formulated to mimic the composition of skin sebum (read: oil) so that it can properly penetrate, this acidic fluid treats chronic congestion (i.e. blackheads, whiteheads, acne, milia, etc.) and decreases pore diameter. A blend of 0.5 percent salicylic acid and 5 percent polyhydroxy acid dissolves excess oil, while volcanic ash and Korean wormwood detoxify without compromising the skin barrier. $60, slurplaboratories.com

Lancôme’s Rénergie HCF Triple Serum

AEDIT-Lancome

Say ‘so long’ to the need to cocktail multiple skincare products in order to reap the benefits of certain powerhouse actives. This serum features three distinct formulas — a creamy hyaluronic acid, a lightweight vitamin C and niacinamide emulsion, and a gel-based ferulic acid — housed in separate chambers to maintain optimal efficacy. The perfect dose of all three is released with each pump, and they work harmoniously to target visible signs of aging (think: fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and volume loss). $135, lancome-usa.com
